The DJI Mavic Pro is one of our all-time favorite drones. It offers gimbal stabilized 4K video and 12mp still photos. Unlike the Phantom drones, the Mavic Pro folds up in a small easy to carry package while still featuring prosumer specs. The Mavic can fly for up to 27 minutes with a range of up to 4.3 miles and a top speed of 40mph in sports mode. When the drone is folded up it is about the size of a water bottle.

The Mavic Pro offers the following features (from the DJI website):

FLY FURTHER Inside the Mavic’s pocket-sized remote controller is DJI’s brand new OcuSync transmission technology, with a range of 4.3mi (7km)*, HD 720p long range and Full HD 1080p short range video streaming. *Unobstructed, free of interference, when FCC compliant.

NO BUMPS AND SCRAPES An unprotected drone could hit obstacles during long-distance flight or when descending from an inadequate height in Return to Home mode. The Mavic uses FlightAutonomy technology to sense obstacles up to 49ft (15m) away and allows the Mavic to bypass them or brake to hover, reducing accidents.

PRECISION HOVER Satellite positioning can only help a drone hover in an unobstructed outdoor area free of interference. Without satellites, the drone will not be able to position and become susceptible to drifting. However, with forward and downward vision sensors, the Mavic can hover precisely indoors or in places without GPS.

STAY FLYING LONGER The Mavic is only 1/6th the size of the Phantom 4 but this reduction in size doesn’t mean a reduction in flight time. The Mavic actually flies much longer than you would expect from its compact size. It is capable of reaching an absolute maximum flight time of 27 minutes and a maximum distance of 8mi (13km) due to its powerful, high-efficiency motors.

4K ULTRA HD VIDEO Mavic supports 4K video at 30fps. No Electronic Image Stabilization is used, ensuring all footage is 4K. We have created a miniaturized, ultra-precise 3-axis gimbal for the Mavic, capable of stabilizing the camera even during high-speed motion for smooth video and sharp photos.

PHOTOS WITH ALTITUDE Everyone loves a good photo. Whether you just want to take a snap or are building up your portfolio, the Mavic’s 12-megapixel camera with Adobe DNG RAW support is ready to shoot.

SHOOT LIKE A PRO. AUTOMATICALLY. You don’t need a film crew when you fly the Mavic because all you need is ActiveTrack. Just tell it who to track and it handles the rest, making you shoot like a pro.

WAVE FOR YOUR DRONIE With the Mavic in the air pointing at you, a gesture is all it takes to snap a photo. Get selfies like you’ve never seen before with Mavic’s Gesture Mode.

FINELY TUNED CONTROL If you are lining up a photo, or even flying indoors, you don’t want to be flying too fast. Flip on Tripod Mode and every move the Mavic makes becomes slow and precise.

FLY BY PHONE Maybe all you want to do is grab a quick dronie, set up tracking to shoot a friend, or even just head skywards for a quick flight. All you need is your phone.

TAPFLY Beginner pilots often have trouble flying in a straight line because they aren’t familiar with joysticks, which then makes shooting smooth video tricky. TapFly means you can just tap where you want to go and the Mavic will fly smoothly in that direction, so you can focus on controlling the gimbal and capturing photos and video. Flying really can be that easy.

AT YOUR COMMAND The Mavic acts on your every instruction almost instantly. Whether you want to shoot a slow, graceful flowing shot, or get your blood pumping at 40mph (65kph) speeds in Sport Mode.

SEE THE WORLD LIKE A BIRD See the world through the eyes of a bird when you wear the super high-quality wireless DJI Goggles.

SHOOT. EDIT. SHARE. You have shot the most incredible scene imaginable. Now you can edit it with just a few taps in the DJI GO 4 Editor, and share it instantly for all the world to see.

DUAL REMOTE CONTROLLER MODE Both Master and Slave remote controllers can control the aircraft and gimbal, but the master remote controller has priority. A more experienced pilot can use the Master remote controller to override a less experienced pilot for better safety. Dual Remote Controller Mode makes it fun and easy to fly the Mavic and film aerial footage collaboratively.
